BARDSTOWN, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College senior Chris Lewis shot a team-best 74 on Monday and is tied for seventh place after the opening round of the St. Catharine College Fall Invitational at Bardstown Country Club at Maywood.

The Blue Raiders are third at the midway point of the two-day tournament after carding a 303. Lindsey Wilson trails first-round leader University of the Cumberlands (293) by 10 shots and host St. Catharine (298) by five strokes entering Tuesday's final round.

Lewis (37-37) is three shots off the pace of Cumberlands' Aaron Watkins who fired a one-under par 71 (34-37).

Lindsey Wilson sophomore Nathan Clark (38-37) and junior Daron Morris (37-38) are tied for 11th in the 68-man field. The Blue Raider pair each carded three-over par 75s on the 7,245-yard, par-72 Maywood course.

Senior Nicolas Navarro is tied for 27th following a 79 (40-39) on Monday and freshman Nathan Hincks is tied for 30th after an 80 (41-39). Junior Ryne Burnett -- playing as an individual -- finished with a 79 (41-38) and is tied with Navarro at 27th.

Lindsey Wilson returns to action at 8 a.m. CT on Tuesday for the final round of the tournament and of the fall season.
